Description

This fully illustrated atlas attempts to bring together the important events of World War II and demonstrate clearly how they were linked in terms of cause and effect. Its unique visual approach to history combines detailed chronology with a new atlas. Each spread of maps has a chronological key which locates events in terms of the spectrum of the entire war. All major campaigns are discussed and overviews allow a comparison of events world-wide during specific periods of time. Charles Messenger served in the Army for many years and has also written "A History of the British Army" and a biography of Bomber Harris.show more
